Steaks with Avocado Butter and Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

So, my plan is to have as many meals cooked on the grill as possible for a couple of reasons:

1) clean up is easier since we have fewer pans
2) my husband does the grilling so I don't have to cook
3)...well there is no 3.  Really it is just about Dave doing the cooking and no dishes.

Every once in a while, I'll plan a steak for Dave and then, even if he does suspect the grilling is all about him doing the cooking, he'll be distracted by a steak, his favorite meal.

The avocado butter and the red pepper sauce make this special.  The avocado butter melts over the top and adds a buttery richness while the warm red pepper sauce adds a sweet note and lightens it up a little.  This is one steak dinner I can have all long as Dave is doing the cooking.

Avocado Butter
1/2 avocado
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

Mash the avocado and butter with a fork until combined.  Mix in salt and pepper.  Cover and refrigerate until needed.

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
1/2 cup roasted red bell peppers packed in water
1/2 cup Catalina dressing

In a blender, combine roasted red peppers and Catalina dressing until smooth.  Transfer to a small saucepan, heat through over low heat.
